When we came back from our lil’ afternoon hike, we were in for a real surprise.
Ofcourse we knew that Macau was all about glitter and gold, but Hotel Lisboa, the oldest in the town, is fit for a palace.
Munching on the Koi Kei biscuits, starry-eyed, we pulled over at the reception to check-in.
And then walked the aisle that led to our room. Was it Christmas already?
The hotel houses atleast 10 restaurants, an in-house cake shop, a huge aquarium and we gave up on counting the stores. The casino is on four levels, éclat with a lighting mash-up.
We stopped by to make a call in the lobby area public booths. But gave up quickly.
Feeling as though, we were walking past a mini museum, Chinese pottery and ancient antiques emerged.
Our walk was quite an entertainment…
…and rewarded with a marshmellow of a room. Steer clear of over the top decor – it was the right mix of traditional and modern furnishing. We were in the Superior Tower room, overlooking beautiful lighting of the Grand lisboa hotel.
Pampered with Chinese tea, an indulgent mini bar and quick in-room dining, the extravagance is just what someone needs on a vacation.
Its difficult to get enough of this place.
So we set off on a long post dinner walk, discovering the indoor swimming pool and fishies in the grand aquarium.
The hotel is big enough to spend an hour walking. A swim was irresistible and the temperature controlled water was inviting. Such a perfect way to call it a day. We were back in time to dive into the bed.
The next morning, breakfast was an equally grand affair. Poached eggs, croissants, hash browns, spring rolls, omelet, a line of raspberry jam and honey sat pretty on the table.
We buckled up to begin a sunny day ahead.
